Whether you are coming home from a long, stressful day at work or you have finally collected your children from all their summer activities, the last thing you want to find is a hot, stuffy home and a broken air conditioner. One of our goals at Cool Sunshine is to be sure that scenario does not happen to you. If you live in Littleton, CO, you know the importance of having a working air conditioner in the summer.
One of the best ways to minimize the chances of having a failing air conditioning system here in Colorado is through regular maintenance. Remember that you will probably be asking your air conditioning system to work 24/7 on the hottest days—it deserves to get a little TLC before the task. Call our professional heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) team to conduct a thorough inspection and cleaning, so your air conditioner is ready for the big job ahead.
Besides minimizing the chances of failure, a well-maintained air conditioner will be more energy efficient, reducing your energy bills. In addition, you will also be extending the overall life of your unit, which means your air conditioning system can serve you in years to come.
However, if you find your older system is unreliable, our team can also help you select a new air conditioning system that will meet your particular needs at an affordable price.

Building a new home or remodeling your current home is an exciting adventure for any family. If you are designing your dream home in Colorado, you may be overwhelmed by the number of decisions you need to make.
One decision you do not want to make hastily is what kind of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system you will install. This is also true when it comes time to replace or upgrade your current heating and cooling system.
Many homeowners select a furnace as their heating option. If that is where you are headed, be sure to call Cool Sunshine for recommendations and assistance.
Furnaces have a long history in helping families keep warm in with cold weather. Today there are a vast number of furnaces on the market. They can provide reliable heat for small, medium, and large homes as well as single-story or multistory designs. Furnaces are designed to work well in urban locations, subdivisions, or country homes.
The good news is there is a furnace designed just for your particular Littleton, CO home. Let our professional team help you find it.
We can recommend a correct-sized furnace so you always have comfortable heat on the coldest winter days while not wasting energy at the same time. We can go over various efficiency ratings, fuel sources, and features so you get all the things important to you in a new furnace. And we can work with you on budget and timing.
Indoor Air Quality
According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the average American spends 93 percent of their time indoors. It’s no wonder that poor indoor air quality can have such a detrimental effect on your health. Our professionals at Cool Sunshine can test your indoor air quality as well as provide tips and services to help you improve it in your Colorado home.
Common indoor air pollutants include dust and dust mites, pet hair and dander, bacteria and viruses, smoke, and chemicals from cleaning supplies and new furniture. Most heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems use an air filter to remove some of these pollutants. However, the size of particulates removed may vary depending on the quality of the filter.
Poor indoor air quality can lead to general discomfort or possibly more serious health issues. Asthma and allergies can both be aggravated by poor indoor air quality, causing additional respiratory distress.
Instead, consider having one of our air quality professionals come out and evaluate your Littleton, CO home. Air duct cleaning, air purification systems, and HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters may be recommended as part of a remediation program. Our trained experts will also inspect your HVAC system for potential leaks of carbon monoxide and other dangerous substances.
The last thing you want to happen in the heat of the summer is to turn on your air conditioning system and find it blowing hot air or to fire up your furnace to find it broken as the mercury drops in the winter. One way to prevent this scenario from occurring is to schedule regular HVAC maintenance service calls during the shoulder seasons. Our professionals at Cool Sunshine will be happy to come out in the spring to inspect your air conditioner and again in the fall to check your furnace.
Our trained technicians will perform a multipoint inspection to make sure everything is in good working order. In addition, they will thoroughly clean all the components of your system and change filters. If they discover any worn parts, they will advise replacement to avoid a costly repair later. Lubrication, tightening of electrical connections, and a safety check are included.
By investing in regular HVAC maintenance for your Littleton, CO home, you will keep your home comfortable. In addition, you can save money on your energy bills in Colorado and increase the longevity of your entire system in the long run. Maintenance inspections are usually much less expensive than emergency repair calls, saving you money down the road.
Have you ever been frustrated while trying to arrange furniture around your heating and cooling vents? What could you do with all that space your furnace takes up in your utility room or basement? Today, Cool Sunshine offers an alternative to bulky, vent-dependent heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems that can eliminate these issues.
Radiant floor heating is installed under the floors of your Colorado home. This electric- or water-based system provides heat through your flooring instead of blowing warm heat through your air ducts. As the heat rises, the interior of your home warms up efficiently and evenly.
Since radiant floor heating is so close to your living space, it only needs to heat up to about 84 degrees Fahrenheit to provide comfortable room temperatures. In comparison, a radiator usually reaches 150 degrees in order to warm up the surrounding air.
Radiant floor heating is a great addition, especially to new construction, in Littleton, CO. Once installed, it is less expensive to operate, easier to maintain, and safe. It will eliminate hot or cold spots in your home and free up all that space taken up by vents and HVAC equipment.
Installing radiant floor heating can take some time, however, and disrupt daily life as the flooring will need to be lifted. Installation is usually more expensive than installation for a conventional HVAC system.
It may not occur to you to add on to your existing heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system to solve chronic issues in your Littleton, CO home. You simply turn your thermostat up or down to control your comfort level. While that may work for some small homes, you might benefit from considering alternative options. And one of these is a whole-house humidifier.
These units do much more than control the humidity in your Colorado home. They can also lower your HVAC bills, help you with chronic respiratory or other health issues, and improve the quality of your home’s circulating air.
While these may seem like big claims for a system that only adds moisture to your home, the simple fact remains that whole-house humidifiers do not get enough attention from people who may need them the most.
If you think your home may benefit from one of these units or you would simply like to explore your options, our Cool Sunshine professionals at 303-287-1846 are happy to help you. Request whole-house humidifier service online today.
Zone Control Systems
Technology continues to advance on all fronts today, especially in the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) field. One of the more exciting new developments is zone control systems . These systems tie into your overall HVAC system; however, they provide you with superior temperature control in different zones of your Colorado home.
Here’s how they work. Each zone of your home has its own thermostat, which can be programmed by day and time. As one zone “calls” your central system, automatic dampers open and close to direct the heating or cooling to that particular zone. If a second zone puts in a request, dampers adjust accordingly. Your HVAC system will continue to run until all zones reach their desired temperatures.
Our Cool Sunshine team can work with you to see if your current HVAC system can work with a zone control system. In most cases, controlling temperature by zones of your home will reduce the amount of energy you consume and lower your monthly utility bills.
Gone are the days of trying to determine the optimum temperature for your entire home or trying to manually close and open vents in the middle of your daily duties. Zone control systems take the worry out of managing your Littleton, CO home’s comfort levels and energy consumption.
Contact Cool Sunshine at 303-287-1846 with any questions about zone control systems. Our team would be happy to help you determine if it’s right for you. Request zone control system service online today.
